How was it different? We go as long as we can get there on Friday. My experience has been that if you don't then half of the good items are gone and most of the apples are even sold out. I realize they can't control that, the harvest is what it is, but maybe they need to ask more orchards to come. More regular vendors too.

I am not trying to degrade the apple fest at all. I always go every year . I love the environment I just feel the vendors count is way down from previous years you know? Maybe it's just me lol

it's free admission, how can that be too expensive? we just walk around and look, maybe buy some maple syrup, a lot of vendors are nonprofits, like red cross and the YW so the food is a good price and proceeds go to a good cause, some people are just an oscar the grouch, try being more like Big Bird, you'll be happier!

No I think you're right on that. I heard they started raising prices for booths, someone told me it doubled. Not sure if that's correct or not but I can see some vendors not wanting to pay double. Especially when there are so many other festivals to choose from this time of the year that are much larger.
It would be nice if it eventually expanded all throughout the grounds. Look at Johnny Appleseed and festivals like that. They are huge. Lots of money to be made, people like walking around in the cooler temps and have started buying for Christmas already.
